Dancing For The Ages
Dancing for the Ages is a popular NWDance outreach program which takes volunteer dancers to area retirement communities to bring the joy of social dance to seniors who may not have had the opportunity to dance in years. The program was the brainchild of Marlene Bengeult, who was inspired by her then 92-year-old mother. Living in a retirement home, her mother’s love of music and dance was undiminished, but her opportunities to enjoy them were limited. Marlene recruited dancers to volunteer their skills and enthusiasm in retirement home settings, and Dancing for the Ages was born. Since its inception, it has put smiles on the faces of hundreds of participants, volunteers and residents alike!
